Sewing Myself Some Love

The lovely ladies over at Pattern Revolution are spending the month of February encouraging women to sew for themselves. Despite being in the middle of moving and having a super limited fabric stash, I jumped at the chance to give myself another push to sew something new!DSC_5912 copy

I sewed up the Telluride Top from Terra’s Treasures, and it’s quickly worming its way into my weekly wardrobe! It’s super comfortable and the fit is just lovely.DSC_5946 copy

There are so many different options in this pattern! I chose to sew the faux henley, because I don’t have any shirts that have this unique neckline, and I just love the look of it. The instructions for the neckline were a tad confusing at first, but once I had them figured out, everything came together beautifully.DSC_5925 copy

I also sewed the high low hem, which is another first for me. I’m really pleased with the length, and I may have even chosen to wear this top one day with some jeans that have a hole in the bum that hasn’t been repaired yet. What can I say, I like to be practical!

And because I’m a cardigan girl, I needed to have one that would cover the back hem! A lengthened Peek-a-boo Cambridge Cardigan was the perfect choice. I left off the button band, partly because I just barely eeked this out of the fabric I had on hand, and also because this way the cardigan can be worn over a dress and not feel too casual.

Let’s talk fabric: the sweater knit is from Hancock Fabrics (it doesn’t seem to be available online right now), and is pretty lightweight. It’s nice and drapey, and the color will go with just about everything. It’s so soft that I kind of want to wrap it around my pillow. That’s totally not weird, right??

This floral knit… oh this floral knit! I AM IN LOVE WITH IT. Seriously, I wish I had gotten more! It’s from Girl Charlee, and the weight is absolutely perfect. And those flowers… all the heart eyes!
